    Custom Bing 'Top Sites' configuration and settings broken.

    I noticed this yesterday. In MS Edge, if you click 'new tab' you get an option to customise the page and in my case I have it to display my top or favorite sites.

    The problem is that suddenly they are all mixed, all the first bunch that were pinned or now unpinned and even some of the favicon images are incorrect. In the image you can see the left icon text is greyed out... that is not unique to that site, even Ten Forums favicon did that.

    If I start again and set them all up then I find the next time I open the browser they are all muddled and unpinned again.

    Is this a coincidence...

    This is happening on BOTH my PC's. Yesterday my second PC updated to the latest cumulative update. My main PC has not yet had the update applied (Pro set to defer updates) and had in any case not been on at all at this point.

    Both PC's will not now allow the page to be set up, they shuffle stuff around and 'unpin' everything I set.

    Any ideas ?

    I'm beginning to think either something has changed with the way Bing handles the required info (is it a form of cookie ?) because I have just spent the last 30 minutes deleting everything possible in Edge and then re-entering all my site preferences which is a good 25 minutes job.

    The 'Top Sites' now seem to be behaving more normally. I've just set a few up and they drag and drop into the wanted places and up to now, those that are pinned are remaining so.

    Very odd because this issue has struck both my PC's simultaneously.
